Hydraulics and Pneumatics

Dawn provides hydraulic site maintenance and pneumatic design and installation for businesses across Victoria. We have been providing a quality service for over 25 years and have extensive knowledge of the needs of many industries.

Hydraulic Site Maintenance

We offer hydraulic site maintenance to all industries with large equipment. Maintenance is particularly important for industries with high turn around and continuous use of equipment. We have qualified staff who have extensive experience in hydraulic maintenance.

Hydraulic machines power the moving parts of many industrial machines by applying the force of a fluid under pressure. Some systems are very small, simple and straightforward, while others are very large, high pressure systems with a complex array of servo valves and pumps.

No matter the size or complexity, proper maintenance of both the system and the hydraulic oil is crucial in maximising uptime and reducing repair costs.

Hydraulic Equipment Benefits

The advantages of having hydraulic equipment include:

  • Liquid (as a gas is also a 'fluid') does not absorb any of the supplied energy
  • It is capable of moving much higher loads and providing much higher forces due to incompressibility
  • The working fluid is basically incompressible, leading to minimum spring action
  • There is no need to "bleed off" pressurised air to release the pressure on the load

Pneumatics

Dawn provides design and installation of any and all pneumatic systems. Our company has been servicing industrial clients for over 25 years and employs only passionate and experienced staff.

Pneumatic systems are extensively used in industry, where factories are commonly plumbed with compressed air or compressed inert gases. This is because a centrally located and electrically powered compressor that powers cylinders and other pneumatic devices through solenoid valves is often able to provide motive power in a cheaper, safer, more flexible, and more reliable way than a large number of electric motors and actuators. Maintaining your pneumatic system is of the utmost of importance in ensuring smooth and productive turnover.

Pneumatic System Benefits

The advantages of having a pneumatic system include:

  • Simplicity of design and control
  • Machines are easily designed using standard cylinders and other components
  • Machines operate by simple ON - OFF type control
